I’m not going to lie, October was rough. It was sprinkled with health issues, anxiety over said health problems – but also laughter. I’ve always known the importance of laughter, but it was reiterated this month. So bear with me as I sort through my sparse photos (it’s hard to remember to capture moments when you’re not feeling 100%)
Ian and I welcomed fall with an afternoon trip to an apple orchard. I took full advantage of their free trolley ride and enjoyed a scenic tour around the orchard before picking apples. I had planned on baking apple crisp – but after picking 15 lbs of apples we had a slight change of plan! Co-workers were greeted with cinnamon apple muffins, baked oatmeal and applesauce the next day!
After weeks of planning, I flew up to MN for a girls’ weekend with my college friends! It was refreshing to explore a new city, watch chick flicks, and talk late into the night. So much has changed over the years, but it was heartwarming to know that we all could pick-up from where we left off.
Since I was feeling under the weather for most of the month I opted out of a few social events, namely Packer games. The silver lining? Ian was able to pack in a bunch of quality time with friends. Here is a shot of one of their tailgates!
Fall wouldn’t feel complete without a wandering through dried corn stalks! So Ian and I bundled up spent an afternoon navigating our way through a corn maze. It was the perfect way to say farewell to October!
Looking back, even though October was rough, there are moments I will cherish scattered throughout the month. I know November will have its ups and downs as well, but I’m excited to see what the new month has in store.
